I like to write about all things beautiful but do tend to lean toward flower related tops. After seeing Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for the third time last night, once in London, once in Washington DC and now in my very hometown, I need to write about it for the second time. Among some of the most beautiful things in the world I believe is a Christopher Wheeldon pas de deux. Alice has its beautiful share, along with so many other incredible scenes; the flower scene is so gorgeous you will feel like you took Alice’s mushrooms as you are transported to a dreamlike state just watching, the cat above, the caterpillar, the maze garden, the QUEEN OF HEARTS ..so much to enjoy.
Genius plays a major roles with the music , Joby Talbot, the imagery, Bob Crowley , the dance, Christopher Wheeldon, it takes you over and you are lost in a magical place for an evening. I am transformed again to a 6 year old who is certain she wants to be a ballerina when she grows up. I was not alone as the very dignified ( 70 plus?) year old woman in front of me reading W at intermission yelled ” GO ALICE” near the end of the show. But the show ends and I realize there isn’t enough green juice in the world that will make my new dream come true to be a ballerina ( at 25 plus years old) , so I’ll just keep enjoying these incredible productions.
Google the show there are so many images saturated with colors its really hard to chose. I wanted to use images I hadn’t used before, one is a repeat.
